TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Milatos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion International Airport, "Nikos Kazantzakis" is the primary airport on the island of Crete and the country’s second busiest airport after Athens International Airport. It is located about 5 km east of the main city center of Heraklion, near the municipality of Nea Alikarnassos. It is a shared civil/military facility.
The airport took its name after the Cretan native and most famous Heraklion resident Nikos Kazantzakis, who left his mark in Greek history as a novelist and philosopher. Heraklion Airport is Crete's largest and busiest airport, also serving as a connection between Agios Nikolaos, Malia, Hersonissos, Stalida, Elounda and other resort towns. The airport has been operating since the late 30s and its annual number of passengers is approximately 5 million. The airport serves both domestic and international flights.
Heraklion Airport is operating in a renovated and modern space since 1971. The airport complex has been expanded in order to accommodate increased traffic and serve an ever-increasing flight network. Especially during peak season, the airport gets really busy, thus some sporadic delays are expected.
The proximity of the airport to the Heraklion town allows the visitor some spare time to explore or simply wind out and have a nice lunch or drink in the local eateries. Furthermore, around the airport, one can find some excellent hotels and resorts in case an overnight stay is required. The historical site of Knossos Palace and the Archaeological Museum are also located nearby and can be easily reached from the airport with our help. Navigating through the airport can be a daunting task, airport staff will be readily available to assist you.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Milatos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Milatos is a small fishing village located 45km east of Heraklion Town, just next to Sisi. Milatos is an ancient city from Minoan times very important because of its geostrategic position. The area is a true Cretan landscape with small rocky coves, ancient olive trees and crystal-clear water. Here you will find many beaches suitable for swimming.
One kilometre east of Milatos, at Pigada you will some small isolated bays with sand, which are surrounded by high rocks and enjoy your own private beach. The main beach of Milatos is just next to the picturesque small harbour. It is a large beach with pebbles and rocks but unfortunately very wavy. The next beach is located inside the harbour near the taverns of the village. It is a small sandy beach, quite well-organized, preferred by most of the visitors and families with small children, as the water is always calm.
The famous Milatos cave is located close to the village. However, the Milatos cave is really known for a drama which unfolded with Turkish invaders in February 1823. Early in 1823, the residents of the surrounding area took refuge in the Milatos Cave to hide from the Turkish troops of Hasan Pasha, who were plundering and looting Lassithi. The Cretan rebel leaders, with a tiny force of about 150 men, fought the Pasha's large army around the cave in a desperate defence of the local inhabitants. The fighting went on for two weeks, until the besieged, suffering from extreme hunger and thirst, dared a heroic, but devastating escape. The defending warriors were slaughtered, many of the older ones trampled to death by oncoming Cavalry, the captured children were sold into slavery and 18 priests were burned to death.
Milatos is ideal for relaxing holidays away from mass tourism and close to Heraklion town and Hersonissos. It can be easily used as your base for exploring Crete.
